  1. Um, the city doesn't own the cyclones...
  2. And why discount it if they have they have demand? - if it is discounted it means nobody is paying for the event so they lower it to increase demand - it's called dynamic pricing.... Similar to other paid attractions already at KI that adjusts it's price based on demand.... On many nights the attraction remained at $40 all night and on other nights it incorporates dynamic pricing principals...
  3. That would be when Banshee opened..and it was all day on Good Friday...and then Saturday was a ghost town..
  4. I doubt they would do media day on a Saturday...the whole intent of media day is to do it a day before the park opens to build up hype to drive attendance the next few days...
  5. Um, April 11, 2020 is a Saturday...
  6. It was mentioned earlier these homeowners reside in the township and not within City of Mason boundaries, so they do not have the ability to vote in new leadership at the City....
  7. Shaggy posted earlier that the contractor for Orion has the contract to demo Vortex.....
  8. You all realize KI is not Mason's biggest employer from a true financial standpoint to the City of Mason's operating budget. But the argument can be made that having KI in their town does help other businesses indirectly... Based on number of full time employees, they don't even rank (meanwhile Great Wolf Lodge is No. 8 in full time employees). P&G is number one approaching almost 2,000 full-time employees and those salaries bring in more income tax revenue than all full-time and part time KI employees... However, due to seasonal employees, KI does crack into the top 10 in income tax withheld coming in at number 8 - so 7 employers within the City of Mason provide more income to the City of Mason than Kings Island...
  9. If you have a large tract of land and you sell part of it it to a company planning to build an amusement park and you plan to live on the part out didn't sell, well that is your own doing... Either sell the whole property and move or be glad you found a willing buying when you wanted to sell...
  10. The ole NIMBY syndrome (Not In My Back Yard)... In all likelihood the homes came after the park was there...but there will be some surrounding homes that could have long-time residents that were there prior to the park. Interesting the article says allegedly runs past 1am...that is a fact on nights park is open until 1am LOL Wonder if KI could annex themselves out of Mason and then stick it to the residents when their taxes go up to make up for the loss of revenue KI brings Mason... Contrast that to Glendale Ohio where the railroad has been there since 1851 and residents recently got passed a Quiet Zone where the trains cannot blow their horn approaching roadway intersections...clearly nobody is still alive from when that rail was installed in 1851 so people moved in knowing about the trains...
  11. If you purchased FunPix for the next year, the rest of the current year is free under the promotion...
  12. And Cedar Fair giving away 5 months of the gate "free" under the "Buy a pass for next year, get the rest of this year free" promotion isn't fair to everyone that had already purchased a pass for said year. Did anyone get a pro-rated 5 months refund...nope... I suspect we will see this trend continue - they gave away 5 months of gate and FunPix under that promotion, now trying out the FastLane, and next will be meal and drink plan and lockers...anything to push the attendance numbers up...until it ticks too many off and they don't renew...then the discounts become even more aggressive to lure new people in...interesting cycle...
  13. A guest cannot change the way the webcams face...
  14. Without getting into specifics and reasons why, when you view the KI webcams on the webpage, it is not being viewed via DDNS, IP, RTSP, Port Forwarding, VPN, P2P, or any other method most would view a camera at their home with....The KI feed is going through at least 3 different software/network platforms before the image is displayed on the webpage. Each one of those platforms, including the camera and recording device, has software. Upgrade one and it doesn't talk to the others nicely and...you guessed it...no feed to the website. Just because the webcams were not visible to the public doesn't mean they were not visible or not recordable to KI staff...it simply means there was a software issue with one of the software/server platforms from camera to website... And actually the top of the tower is climate controlled...ever notice the dripping of water onto you when standing on the top platform waiting for the elevator...that is from the AC unit above as it is climate controlled for the equipment inside...
